The Freshmen Arrive
Oh my gosh, guys. I've been at school for the past week to help with the orientation of the new students. That includes freshmen and transfer students. It's been a crazy week of planning,, meetings, running around, and pretending to like some certain person who happened to be my awful roommate from last year.
So..with 5 days of no sleep under my belt, I got up bright and early yesterday to help the newbies check in. I, with the other staff members, spent the next 5 hours sitting at a check-in desk. After that, we performed a skit to introduce ourselves to the new students. Finally, we played games and had ice cream.
Today has been just as crazy. We started as early as yesterday and got right to it. I had to drive 30 minutes to pick up one of the rental 13-passanger vans. When I got back, I had to devour lunch in order to drive people to our "Save the River" service project. Later we had another meeting. Then I had to drive students to where we were having dinner. I snuck out early and am now doing my best to relax.
Tomorrow is more of a chill day. Monday includes a campus tour, seminars, and the arrival of returning students. All of this seems just fine, but everything is back-to-back, none of us have slept in almost a week, and I've been wearing the same shirt for two days!!!
Just a little update about why I kind of disappeared. I'm not sure it will get much better. I'm taking 20 credit hours, working part-time, writing for the school paper, and volunteering at the local church. If you don't hear from me for a while, I promise I'm still alive...just without time to live.
